Stauf Adhesives announces it has purchased Advanced Adhesives Technologies Inc. a Dalton, Georgia-based flooring adhesive manufacturer, strengthening both companies by combining technologies and offerings in the marketplace. The two companies will continue to operate as separate entities and there will be no changes in current distribution, employees, or management.
“Our world is constantly changing; if you are standing still, you are actually going backwards. You need the vision and willingness to take risks to reach your goals and fulfill your dreams,” says Wolfgang and Sarah Stauf. “Today we have taken the first step into a new chapter of our business by acquiring AAT, a family owned and operated business with values and visions similar to our own. We are excited about growing both companies, and look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead.”
“We are extremely motivated and highly energized by the opportunities afforded to our clients and employees through the combination of Stauf and AAT,” reports Greg Wood President of Advanced Adhesive Technologies. “Over the last thirty years, AAT has built a valuable brand that will only be enhanced by the combination of technologies between Stauf and AAT. The cultures of the companies are very similar. The Stauf family shares AAT’s long held values of producing high quality products, providing high value service along with industry leading innovations. Both companies hold their employees, customers and vendors in the same high regard. We couldn’t be more excited to continue the legacy of both great companies.”
“I think the acquisition is an absolute home run for Stauf USA and AAT,” says David Ford, VP of Sales and Marketing for Stauf. “The ability to have water based technologies and our current offerings from the same source is an alliance that can only strengthen allegiance from distribution.”
